The webcam on the XO sure has a lot of potential for cool killer apps.
For example things with
- Motion Tracking
- Gesture Recognition
- Face Recognition
- Object Identification
Recently I came in touch with OpenCV
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opencv) -- it's a open source
image-recognition library developed by intel, which does exactly this
kind things. It's also a library commonly used for robotics.
Anyone here ever played with OpenCV before? I will slowly have a deeper
look into it during the next months, as I am taking a course in image
recognition. Wonder if it works well and fast on the XO. Then it could
even make sense to put effort in a kind of Python API, and examples.
If it works fast enough, I'm sure it will be lots of fun playing with
this library and image recognition :)
